TRAVEL STORIES . . . PAINTING & DRAWING ON THE ROAD. . . EXTRORDINARY PEOPLE . . . ROAD TRIP ADVENTURES .. . . LIVING IN A CONVERTED VAN . . .
TRAVEL. Living the dream. The problems that can happen while on the road and how to overcome them. It’s all ahead of us. Here’s a few things we have thought about and how we want to make our website work:
So far, if you go into THE ROAD TRIP there are four stories.
TO SELL OR NOT TO SELL the house and start living in a camper van full time.
WHAT CAMPER? Is the question. Which van do we choose for our new home?
BUYING THE BEAST is when we realised this mission was nearly impossible!
LIFE IN THE SLOW LANE driving the van to a location where the search for a transformation to a camper van begins.
We’ve added this little extra because then you can understand what’s going on here, but sometimes the translations from English to one of the following languages – Polish, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese or Italian – the text seems to have a mind of its own, becoming all mixed up. So good luck with that!
The plan is to do a series of paintings during our travels. It’s about people who have lived out of the box – who have done something different – to make a difference. It’s great what people do, but they are hidden away until you find them. Do you know of someone like that? Send us a message about who you have in mind. Take a look at our our heroes so far:
Sven Our German Red Cross guy, with a heart of gold!
Barry a fellow artist with amazing skills.
Zander solo cyclist 12,000km through Africa.
Halina A beautiful soul tells a story never told.
PAINTING OUR PLANET EARTH
How things look through the eyes of an artist. We will be using our ever improving skills to show you the world from a different angle, focusing on the unusual. We’ll also be giving you tips and tricks. How to paint and draw in all situations from how to build self confidence as well as answering your questions to putting together a paint box with the essentials for the travelling artist.
FINALLY GETTING ON THE ROAD
Travel is so exciting. You experience different cultures, meet wonderful (and not so wonderful) people, and find yourself in all sorts of unusual situations. Read our blog and join us on our travels. Right now the van is having a service and the plans for the camper conversion are being made. It’s going to happen!
LIVING IN A BOX
With our dogs. So we’ve sold the house and bought the van. We finally found a local family run camper conversion business. What a relief! Are we doing the right thing?! What’s it going to be like to live in a camper? What will the dogs think about it? What will we think about it? What are the problems now and in the future? Find out soon… but read the start of our story – Right HERE
THE SPICE OF LIFE
Part of the pleasure of travelling is eating different foods. We will be picking up homely and healthy, easy-to-cook recipes that are tried and tested and telling the stories of the people behind them. If you have some good food ideas for on the road, then please share your yummy recipes. We will put them all in their own little recipe section , from comfort food, to super healthy, to the unheard of ideas of how to eat on the road in style!
Yes, we will be showing off our art work along with other creativity. Not just in galleries and art exhibitions, but in schools and colleges, where we can show students of all ages how we paint, draw, travel and survive. Hoping to inspire the imaginations of children with what we do.
So – that’s it. It’s time for action.
